Schluter®-ECK-KHK is a stainless steel profile that is subsequently bonded to the inside corners of existing tile or other wall coverings to produce a clean, decorative finish. As such, the profiles can be installed as a repair so that existing damaged corners do not have to be replaced. ECK-KHK provides a 5/16” (8 mm) radius to prevent the accumulation of dirt and make cleaning simple. Thus, the profile is especially suited for commercial kitchens, bathrooms, food processing plants or any environment where a sanitary corner is desired. Note: Matching inside and outside corners and connectors are available for ECK-KHK.
The Schluter®-ECK-KHK profile requires no special maintenance or care and is resistant to mold and fungi. Clean profiles periodically using neutral cleaning agents. Stainless steel surfaces exposed to the environment or aggressive substances should be cleaned periodically using a neutral cleaner. Regular cleaning maintains the neat appearance of stainless steel and reduces the risk of corrosion. Avoid the use of strong acids (e.g. hydrochloric or hydrofluoric) and base/alkaline cleaners (e.g. bleach, ammonia, chlorides). Do not use abrasive cleaning agents and tools. Stainless steel surfaces develop a sheen when treated with a chrome-polishing agent.
1. ECK-KHK is applied to prepared wall corners using KERDI-FIX, silicone, or a similar adhesive. Prior to applying the adhesive, make sure that all surfaces are free from adhesion-inhibiting substances such as oil or grease. Apply a bead of adhesive to the back of each of the profile legs; then press the legs onto the wall covering, ensuring that the lateral edges lie flat and have solid contact throughout.
2. Use a suitable cleaning agent to remove any excess adhesive from around the profile legs.
3. Remove the protective foil.
Note: The ECK-KHK connectors should overlap the profiles by at least 3/8” (10 mm).
Install ECK-KHK inside and outside corners using a permanently elastic, waterproof adhesive (e.g., KERDI-FIX or silicone). Prior to application, any contact-inhibiting substances (e.g., grease, etc.) must be removed.
